About the Journal
The UWI Economics Working Paper Series showcases economic research by members of the University of the West Indies. It includes studies that are about to be published in economics journals or that have publishable quality. Our goal is to contribute to the visibility of UWI economics and UWI as an institution world wide and locally. Our studies are of interest for the academic and public/political communities as well as for the private sector. All UWI Economics Working Papers have to be approved through a majority vote by one editor and by three refrees in a one-side blind review process.
